Yesterday, I was joking about how the feds have been offering a lot of corporate relief. But today, I’m changing hats and moving on to something a little more serious.
Members of the Afrosphere have started somewhat of a chain request that I’m including on my blog. Just in case you aren’t aware or just didn’t think about it; Haiti was hit especially hard during this storm season. The already poor and destitute country was slammed even more by two hurricanes and two tropical storms; all within a month’s time. But at no suprise, the media has turned a blind eye to the story. People of color just don’t make sexy headlines unless we murder people.
Of course, I also welcome you to support any number of our national and statewide relief efforts for disaster victims in the Middle and Southern regions of the U.S. There are plenty of our fellow citizens who are similarly in desperate need of our help. But in this post, I want to pay particular attention to our people over in Haiti who have been consistently plagued by disaster and have very little to help them sustain. Here are a couple of places where you can donate if you feel so inclined:
Of course, these are but a few organizations. There are tons more if you hunt for them. Whatever organization you may choose, please do whatever you can in support of our brothers and sisters both here in the states and abroad.
“And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
